They are truly ridiculous to deal with. Turning up a new 10G dual stack
link with BGP. At turn-up time they tell us we have to order BGP for
IPv6 separately. So you order a circuit with IPv4+IPv6 w/ BGP, but it
doesn't click to them you need it for both AF's? Assuming (wrong) that
maybe they can do both over AF's over the same session, NOPE!...

To top it off, they refuse to enable something as simple as TTL security
on your BGP peering session... but "Oh you can do MD5". Wait, what?
